I found this story particularly nauseating;
DEPRAVED Islamic State militants are attempting to SELL the remains of at least one of Western hostage beheaded in Syria, it has emerged. Middlemen with alleged ties to the terror group have revealed that extremists are trying to raise war funds by selling the mutilated bodies of its dead captives, including American freelance journalist James Foley. The 40-year-old was brutally murdered by a militant dubbed by western fools ‘Jihadi John’ on August 19, in the first high-profile execution of a Western hostage by the group.
So, they decapitate the poor man and THEN try to sell his remains?? There are hardly words to describe such unmitigated evil and yet where is the OUTCRY from Muslims around the world at this barbarism? Where are the street protests? Where is the media outrage?
It strikes me that some are too busy seeking to traduce the reputation of our own Intelligence Services (who do a great job in very difficult circumstances by the way) that they fail to see the REAL evil, the REAL torturers, the utter scum who seek to sell human remains.
Here’s another instance of savagery the likes of which I thought I would never have to write about
IS have beheaded four Christian children in Iraq for refusing to convert to Islam, a British vicar based in the country has claimed. Canon Andrew White, who is known as the ‘vicar of Baghdad’, told Orthodox Christian Network that the killings happened in a Christian enclave close to Baghdad which has been taken over by IS.
They cut the heads off children, they seek to sell the remains of their victims. They deserve to be erased from the face of this Earth and be shown the mercy they show their victims. The issue is not the CIA, the issue is the global JIHAD.

Let’s start with the superficial story.
“A Muslim mother-of-six who posted pictures of her young children posing as jihadists on Facebook and advised an undercover policeman how to travel to Syria has been jailed for five years and three months. Runa Khan, 35, from Luton, took pictures of her young son wearing a turban and holding a toy assault rifle and took another picture of him with a copy of a book by Abdullah Azzam, Osama bin Laden’s mentor. She also had photographs of her older, nine-year-old son and her teenage son holding a sword and posed with the same weapons herself, wearing a niqab.”
Right, so what? We have a British Muslim glorifying Jihad. Hardly big news I fear.
But the more salient point is that she is a mother of SIX. This speaks to the incredibly high BIRTH rate within the Muslim community. This demographic factor explains this headline;
Muhammad is now the most popular name for baby boys in England and Wales..
Any parent will know how expensive it is to provide for just one or two kids. But six? And she doesn’t work? This exposes the depth of the great welfare scam that also is destroying our society.

Here’s the text of an article I wrote for ITN news the other day!
IT’S COLD ON THE HIGH MORAL GROUND
The partisan report by Obama’s Democrat Senators on the CIA’s interrogation techniques of suspected Al Queda terrorists has created much heat but cast little light. Those who regularly pronounce that “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” seem unable to accept that one man’s torture is another man’s robust interrogation.
It’s my view that the CIA deserve a massive vote of sincere appreciation for keeping millions of Americans safe from the ambitions of Bin Laden’s terrorist hordes. 9/11 showed the world (and Senate Democrats?) that militant Islamists were at war with the USA and indeed the rest of the civilised world. This war was unlike any other in history and we all gasped in horror as hijacked civilian aircraft brought down the Twin Towers. The US Government at that time had an obligation to do everything possible to ensure there were no repetition of this carnage. The CIA did their duty and to date, and despite numerous plots, there has been so such repeat of this scale of death.
The essential point to grasp is that the US is at war with an enemy that does not conform to the Geneva Conventions, that exults in REAL torture by cutting the heads of men, women and children, and that seeks to destroy our civilisation. The robust interrogation methods that causes these Senate Democrat and their allies in the liberal media such outrage have not resulted in the death of, or indeed permanent damage to any Jihad suspect. Further, the CIA operated within the laws at that time. We can all agree that no organisation has the right to break these laws.
The use of the word “torture” also raises concerns. Is it torture to make someone sit in an uncomfortable position, or play loud music to them? Or is it a necessity to obtain vital information that can safe lives? Would the moral puritans who decry the CIA methods prefer to see the death of many innocents lest one wannabe Jihadist be inconvenienced or maybe made to feel a little fear?
War is a nasty business and there is no such thing as the high moral ground. Churchill understood this and in his own way so did George W Bush. You are either with us or against us was his rallying cry as the ruins of the World Trade Centre smouldered and thousand of families felt the sting of bereavement. The bleeding heart Senate liberals can posture all they want and decry the CIA methods but the fact remains they offer no viable alternative interrogation techniques to obtain essential and timely information from the enemy that can save lives on the home front.
It was George Orwell who pointed out that “People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf”. This Senate report seeks to deny an unvarnished reality in pursuance of scoring partisan points against fellow Americans whose sole motive was to save the lives of innocents.

Ah, so there is to be no New Deal.
David Cameron has left talks at Stormont in Northern Ireland saying a deal was not possible but he had offered “financial fire power” for one. The prime minister said he was putting what would amount to “almost £1bn of spending power for the coming years” if agreement could be reached. But Sinn Féin said “no credible financial package” was on the table. This was not “new money” said deputy first minister Martin McGuinness. “We were all distinctly underwhelmed by his generosity,” he said.
Sinn Fein, being good little neo-Marxists, deny the need for any financial responsibility beyond asking for MORE! And the foolish Cameron has offered them something in that area, but not enough. He’s misguided. I would CUT the NI budget and FORCE austerity to be implemented by the malingerers and welfare addicts at Stormont. Sinn Fein are playing a “one island” game, and have positioned themselves in ROI as the anti-austerity Party. So they cannot credibly actually DEAL with the deficit in N. Ireland. So they posture and they preen and they wait. Do remember that they have no vested interest in a successful Northern Ireland and that allows them to behave recklessly.

I watched a very, very interesting tv drama/documentary last night. Entitled ‘The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies; it was based on the truly terrible and traumatic reporting of the arrest, interrogation and public humiliation of Mr. Chris Jefferries, over the sad and tragic murder of one of his tenants, Joanna Yeates.
The drama, produced for ITV, retold with graphic exactitude, the perils of being ‘eccentric’, more than a little ‘unworldy’, non-conformist almost extreme in his behaviour; and at the same time being looked at in the minutest detail by a bunch of Bristol policemen who really do believe that ‘they have got their man’, and have briefed the press regarding their suspicions.
As I wrote previously; All I would ever say about Chris Jefferies’ life is that I do hope he hasn’t got a copy of ‘Mein Kampf’ on his bookshelf; hasn’t visited the BNP website regularly on his computer, or worst of all been reading the collected speeches of Margaret Thatcher, because he really would be condemned out of hand!
Mr Jefferies has embarked on a crusade, one which I, as a champion of Free Speech, have some problems with; but it is a crusade based upon his own experiences, and he should make his case accordingly.

Picked up my new car last evening! First HYBRID car I have owned. It uses battery power when under 10mph and then switches to petrol. The tech inside is stunning and as anyone who knows me understands, I simply love smart tech!
It’s been some years since I went Mercedes. I felt the quality build suffered in the early 200o’s but this one feels right, smooth and powerful.

This was demonstrated today as part of the U.S. active arsenal. Why they did the demonstration in the Persian Gulf and mounted it to a ship deployed off the coast of Iran is beyond me.
In all it’s tests it has hit and destroyed it’s target. It even hit targets during the earlier tests in a Sand Storm. Hmmm there are no Sand Storms at Sea…. Anyway Merry Christmas to the Navy may Santa stuff your stockings full of toys.

British Citizenship & Passport eligibility >>> Tesco shopping list
There are more checks done on an online shopping list than those applied to the issue of a British Passport.
And just to make things worse, guess where the people work who decide who gets a British Passport?
Moreover, far too much reliance was placed on self-declaration by applicants so unless an applicant declared financial problems or that they had practised tax avoidance and benefit fraud, no other checks were made to verify this. In some cases, applicants who had very poor immigration histories over long periods, including during the qualifying period for naturalisation, were granted citizenship. The poor histories included having no leave to enter or remain for long periods, working illegally and absconding.
“The granting of British citizenship is a profoundly significant step for both the individual and the UK,” said Vine. “Therefore, I was concerned to find that nationality casework [part of UKVI] had not struck the right balance between this and the need to scrutinise applications thoroughly to ensure that decisions to grant British citizenship were evidence-based. UKVI guidance which allowed case workers to disregard evasion of immigration control during the qualifying period, where there was no other evidence to cast doubt on an applicant’s good character, had resulted in a ‘blanket approach’ being adopted.”

Half of British women are on prescription drugs?! Not even I thought that so many British adults were stuffing so many of them down their throats:
The comprehensive Health Survey for England, which provides a snapshot of the nation’s health, shows 50% of women and 43% of men took at least one medicine in the last week.
This doesn’t include contraceptives or drugs to help against smoking.
Cholesterol-lowering statins, pain relief and anti-depressants were among the most common, with an average of 2.7 million items dispensed every day in the UK.
2.7 million every day! What an earner this is for Big Pharma, which rakes in £15billion a year from the scam, which is more than 15 per cent of the NHS budget. Look around you. Look at the women around you and think of all the women you know: do you think half of them “need” pills to sort out their heads and hearts and blood vessels? Likewise almost a half of men? Of course they don’t, but quacks and patients alike do love a quick solution, even if none is required, and the drug firms are more than happy to oblige. Especially with billions to be grabbed.
What a country: half the people out there are sitting on their arses, watching celeb-TV, stuffing microwaved pizza down their gobs, arteries hardening, depressed that they’re not beautiful celebs, and popping pills to make themselves feel better.

When the level, non-partisan, and genuinely sympathetic report regarding the allegations of serial torture from Senator Feinstein’s committee was published (Sorry about the sarcasm) the usual suspects collectively cleared their throats, and unanimously condemned this bunch of criminals masquerading as employees of the CIA; for their terrible and illegal approach towards people whose only real ambition in their lives was to kill Americans. I would have thought that the first thing any committee, intent upon carving a way through the lies and serial attempts at covering up the truth about the nasty things which were alleged to have been done to these men, all of whom were seemingly arrested whilst on holiday in terror-strewn lands, would have been to interrogate the CIA leaders, ex-leaders and CIA staff who were engaged in these alleged acts of torture.
The rebuttal, shown on the website, is fairly damning to the Majority report, produced without a single interview from any senior or ex-senior CIA staffer. Reading through a small selection of rebuttal documents shows that both the White House and the Administration were briefed, aware, and approved of the techniques used to gain intelligence about people who were planning to kill Americans.
I applaud the CIA for their stance, but of course fully expect the Obama Administration to condemn the CIA, because after all, those nasty Republicans knew what was being done in America’s name, and all those orange jump-suit detainees were all completely innocent; well nearly all, except possibly one or even two bad apples, and they were picked up by mistake, possibly on jay-walking charges.
